Beginner 1 Accelerated course – IN PERSON

At this level you have little or no previous knowledge of the language.

You will learn to share information about yourself in Italian and ask basic questions. You will also learn structure and vocabulary that allow you to function in everyday settings.

Grammar coverage includes singular and plural nouns, articles and adjectives, present tense of regular and some modal and irregular verbs, some prepositions too. Communication goals include: greeting and introducing oneself, asking for information, ordering something at the restaurant, telling the time.

By the end of the course you will begin to understand easy language structures in an immersion classroom setting while learning to speak primarily in the present tense.


Nuovo Espresso 1 is the textbook used for Beginner 1, 2 & 3 levels.

In Beginner 1 we will cover chapters 1 to 4 of the textbook.


A paper copy of Nuovo Espresso 1 can be purchased in person and picked up at our front desk on weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm. We can also ship the textbook to you (shipping charges apply).

The course will be offered IN PERSON at the Italian Cultural Centre of Vancouver. PLEASE NOTE: the course may be moved to Zoom if Covid-19 restrictions will be put in place or we don’t have the minimum number of students.
